Bundled the googletest sources to simplify building and executing the tests. Fixed a couple of issues related to LLVM's libc++ (thanks to Mojca Miklavec and Rasmus Larsen for their help to isolate the problems). Fixed some potential memory leaks. Removed restrict keyword from xxHash sources to avoid C++ compilation errors (xxHash issue 88).

Metafont is now called only once for each font. If the required files can't be found, dvisvgm doesn't call Metafont again for that font. Fixed a build failure on OS X (issue #65). Several minor code improvements and test enhancements.

This is a feature release with the following additions: Basic support for CMap files and CID-keyed fonts has been added. This enables the processing of DVI files created with pTeX, for example. dvisvgm also tries to translate character codes ... [More] according to the available encoding tables stored in the referenced TrueType/OpenType font file. Support for OpenType (OTF) fonts has been added. If a DVI file contains bounding box information created by the preview package, the size of the SVG is adapted accordingly. Also, dvisvgm prints a message showing the assigned width, height, and depth values in TeX point units. Especially, the depth value can be used to vertically align the SVG graphics with the baseline of surrounding text in HTML or XSL-FO documents, for example. $ dvisvgm test processing page 1 [1] applying bounding box set by preview package (version 11.87) width=88.9844pt, height=7.45308pt, depth=3.95029pt page size: 88.9844pt x 11.4034pt (31.2744mm x 4.00782mm) page written to test.svg 1 of 1 page converted in 0.421647 seconds The command-line option --linkmark has been extended to mark hyperlinked areas with an arbitrary background color. The processing of PostScript header specials has been improved. PostScript operator show creates much better results now. The DOCTYPE declaration has been removed from the generated SVG files as the W3C recommends to omit it. The encoding of the generated SVG files has been changed to UTF-8. [Less]

This is another feature update bringing these additions: Basic support for vertically oriented text. Support for DVI format 3 as created by pTeX in vertical/tate mode. Support for DVI format 5 (XDV) as created by XeTeX with option --no-pdf. The ... [More] numeric entity references in the generated SVG files have been replaced by corresponding UTF-8 characters. In the stylesheet section, font-size attribute values get an explicit px unit to ensure proper glyph scaling, e.g. in Opera and Safari. [Less]

This is a small feature release coming with the following additions/changes: Option --zoom has been added to "visually" scale the generated SVG graphics while preserving the original size and position values of the graphic objects. Option ... [More] --linkmark has been extended to allow to select the box/line color highlighting the linked areas. The default value of option --linkmark has been changed from line to box. Hyperlink markers (boxes and lines) are only split on line breaks while kept together in all other cases. dvisvgm now looks for libgs.so.X rather than just libgs.so if the Ghostscript library is not directly linked to the binary. Supported ABI versions are X = 7, 8, and 9. dvisvgm no longer adds a time stamp and machine triplet to the generated SVG files. [Less]

This is another small feature release with the following additions/changes: All DVI files are pre-processed now in order to allow the implementation of features that rely on data not available on the pages being converted. The evaluation of ... [More] hyperref specials has been improved. Internal links that reference targets on different pages are supported now. The \special command dvisvgm:rawdef has been added. It allows to insert raw SVG fragments to the section of the SVG file. The \special commands dvisvgm:rawset, dvisvgm:endrawset, and dvisvgm:rawput have been added. For further information, see section support of specials of the manual page. dvisvgm no longer adds the redundant SVG element missing-glyph to the generated SVG files. The support of external fonts required by XDV files (DVI files created by XeTeX) has been improved. The extent values assigned by the preview package are now correctly displayed in TeX point units.
